Long term, they could use another guy this year. Harris (recent Oklahoma Decommit) would be a great pick up. My money is on Harris ending up at aTm. I thought Clark looked great at the beginning of the year when Howard was suspended. I thought it may have been a good idea to look at Clarke when Howard was struggling to close out the season. It will be interesting to see how many more guys end up verballing to tOSU and if they all qualify. There were rumors several weeks ago that Southward and Lewis were in trouble. I am guessing they sign 5-6 more and a couple of guys that we think they are going to sign end up not qualifying and playing elsewhere. I guess overall the class ends up around 23-24. That would represent the first time that I know of that tOSU oversigned. That said, I have a feeling there will be plenty of spring attrition to bring the numbers down to 82 before fall camp. Not uncommon for a new coach to cause plenty of players to pack their shit.

The future at CB looks much better for tOSU with Burrows on the team in 2013. Probably the best CB recruit out of Ohio since Ginn.Most people forget that Ginn was an all universe CB in HS.

e0y2e3 wrote:When Urban took over this class seemed destined for a 15-20 finish at best.Today, after O'Connor's commitment went official the class stands at #4 on Scout and #3 on Rivals with a bunch more spots.Just unreal.For a guy to have taken a job and moved a class this far in seven freaking weeks is unreal.I know recruiting and star numbers and all that shit isn't anything, but just watching this go down has been remarkable.And if things break as it looks with Williams, Reeves and Dodson ending up Buckeyes Meyer will have put this class together while flipping four kids from PSU, one from Wisconsin, one from ND and preventing the loss of his "stud tailback" to fat Hoke.

JCoz wrote:Its been great. Dont forget Pittman.No need to speculate too much, but as great as this has went it would appear Meyer has been aided greatly by the conditions at Penn State, and Brian Kelly, and even Douchebag up at youdub. Not trying to be a naysayer, Meyer's recruiting chops are well documented, just saying not only did we hit some fortunate winds regarding Meyer being available just at this time, but then several things happened in the midwest that freed up prospects at the perfect time as well. And that's what changes this from being Meyer finishing strong, to something unreal like you are pointing out.

He started out in that group at OSU but moved himself seeing an opportunity to get on the field much faster on offense. From watching him play 3 years at OSU, I have my doubts as to whether he could have been a good/great CB at OSU. He didn't have a ton of lateral quickness, and wasn't the quickest learner either.
